Nigel-The Gardener



Every garden needs a gardener right? Meet Nigel!

The garden hasn't seen much progress because Jake had graduation and not to gloat or anything but he did the usual honor roll, math, science, reading and spelling awards...that kid I tell you! And I did have to sleep four nights in a chair at the hospital at my moms bedside but thank God all that's over.




I made another dog from pipe cleaner but this time I think it looks less pipe cleaner because on this one I used my imagination. Of course I have to give credit for the original concept to Myfroggystuff-I accidentally stumbled on her videos on youtube and although she works in larger doll scale-the craft ideas are very useful to miniatures.

I cannot begin to express all the joy of discovering so many amazing artist and doll/miniature enthusiasts blogs I've come across. To be inspired is one of the greatest things.

Mini hugs to you!

Hello Chadina! First of all, thank you for visiting my blog, and for the lovely comment. Now, I love your name! Ever notice how so many artist have unusual names? My name is somewhat unusual too, I suppose, at least the spelling isn't common. Have you been working with clay long? I loved the tiny koi, and lotus flowers you made! Hope to see you again soon at my blog, I am mostly working in 1;12 scale miniature lately, just posted a new dollhouse baby to my blog, hope you will come and see. Have a great day, Christel

Thank you Christel, glad you like my koi fish and the flower-it was so much fun to let my imagination take me. I've playing with clay a few years now. Thinking of taking some kind of sculpting class-hope to find one...
